I doubt sport mode has anything to do with it, just another leaking o-ring or gasket. You have sure had your share of bad luck lately!

I usually have a 30 mile run to the golf course, so it is not all city driving, but it still gets good gas mileage for a sports car. My 750 averages 17 around town.

Try rebooting the IDrive by holding the power button, & both eject buttons at the same time. This might fix the problem. If you have a convertible, start checking your trunk for water.
